On weekdays, we usually do not get enough sleep, so we wait for the weekend to get enough sleep over the past week, or maybe for the coming one. Doctors warn that such a biased cut is extremely harmful!
On Saturday morning, you sleep until the middle of the day, while waking up, you realize that you would take a nap for another hour or two ?! This condition, when a person cannot fully sleep, is called sleepy bulimia. We rush from one extreme to another: first we torment the body with a lack of sleep, then with a bulk sleep. And neither one nor the other is good for us.
Researchers at Northwestern University (USA, Illinois) have proven that systematic lack of sleep cannot be compensated for at a time. That’s because the lack of quality sleep, the body is able to fill up only the next day, and we give him this opportunity only at the end of the week.
It’s important to know!
Lack of sleep leads to irritability, depression and contributes to obesity. Depriving the body of the possibility of normal recovery of forces, we provoke a slowdown in many processes, including inhibiting and metabolism.
How to improve the quality of sleep?
During the day, try to move more: go on foot, arrange physical exercises in the office, play sports. In the evening you need to feel tired (but not exhausted), then your sleep will be stronger.
Try to sleep at least 6-7 hours a day. The main thing is to develop the habit of allocating a certain amount of time for this and, if possible, fall asleep and wake up at the same hours. Ideally, on the weekend you should adhere to the same schedule, then you will not shift the regime of wakefulness and sleep, which will save the body from unnecessary stress.
Before you go to bed, be sure to ventilate the room (with a slight coolness, sleep better) and turn off everything that may distract you (lights, TV, music). Your last meal should be at least two hours before bedtime!
Learn to relax!
Learn to relax before bedtime! Lie on your back, straighten your legs and arms, stretch and relax the whole body. Make sure that the muscles of the face relax as well. Take a few deep breaths, after which you can fall asleep, thinking about something good, pleasant and, very importantly, pacifying!
